The Zagreb Times Sinke

There are many charming places where one can settle for vacation in Zagreb. However, Hotel Esplanade offers unique level of service, bonding long tradition with modern trends in hospitality. The luxurious site counts almost a full century of existence and being a classy home-away-from-home to all people lucky to visit Croatian Capital. Not just being a place to stay, but an experience to remember: Zagreb’s Esplanade has just been proclaimed the best Historic Hotel for 2019.

The prestigious title has been awarded at the 2019 European Hotel Awards in Geneva. Gathering top hoteliers, the event was as luxurious as institutions that competed for its awards. Winning the title of best historic hotel is no small achievement and Esplanade’s director Ivica Max Krizmanic had plenty of reasons to be satisfied.

“I’m proud of our Zagreb beauty, the icon of style, elegance and glamour. The Esplanade Hotel in 1925, with its luxurious interior, impressive architecture and modern amenities, attracted travellers on the renowned Orient Express,” Krizmanic said while accepting the award from Jerome Chapman, the director of prestigious Références Hôteliers Restaurateurs paper.

Krizmanic congratulated his team for their efforts, noting that Esplanade Zagreb is not just one of the best hotels in Europe but on world level at general.

I had stayed at the Esplanade Hotel a number of times before I moved to Zagreb. The Hotel looks lovely in the lobby and common areas but is in need of a refurbishment in most of the rooms. The one suite we had badly needed a coat of fresh paint and the carpets were stained and needed a good cleaning. This was in 2016 and 2017. Definitely not up to the standard it should have been. We opted to stay at the Hotel Dubrovnik after that because it was cleaner and was not as tired looking as the Esplanade although not as pretty on the exterior. I hope they have done some work on it because it really is a lovely building.
